North Carolina Defective Hip Replacement Lawyer

Being able to move around is an extremely important part of our day-to-day lives. When you chose to undergo a hip replacement surgery, you were probably hoping to improve your mobility so you could get out and enjoy life. Unfortunately, we often hear from people whose mobility has been hurt by defective medical devices, including hip replacements. At Auger & Auger we represent individuals who are looking to pursue claims after defective hip replacements.

Complications from Defective Hip Replacements

Unfortunately, having a defective hip replacement doesn’t just mean that the surgery wasn’t a success, defective hip replacement equipment often causes very serious complications including:

  • Pain at the hip joint
  • Instability
  • Bone loss
  • Infection
  • Loosening of the implant
  • Metal Poisoning
  • Metallosis
  • Dislocation
  • Implant Failure

Types of Defective Hip Replacements  

Hip replacements have become increasingly popular medical procedures and with the increase of these surgeries, a number of different hip replacement manufacturers have entered the market. While some have made improvements to previously safe and successful models, others have made seriously defective hip joints leading to major recalls and severe injuries.

If you or a loved one has had hip replacement surgery involving any of the following models and are having complications from the implant, you need to speak with an attorney as soon as possible. We can help you if you’ve had any off the following recalled hip replacement implants:

  • DePuy ASR
  • Stryker Rejuvenate & ABG II
  • Smith & Nephew R3

There have also been a number of other manufactured hip replacement devices that have been involved in limited recalls or tied to serious complications including:

  • DePuy AML, Pinnacle and Prodigy
  • Biomet M2a hip devices, Taperloc and Mallory-Head
  • Encore Orthopedics Foundation, Linear and Revelation
  • Exactech Opteon
  • Zimmer VerSys, Mayo Hip and Longevity

If you have had complications after a hip replacement surgery, even if it doesn’t involve one of the models mentioned above, you may be entitled to have surgery to fix the problem and may be able to recover compensation. Call now to speak with one of our talented defective hip replacement attorneys. We offer free, no obligation consultations and can help you get back on your feet and out and about soon.
